Hello everyone. I'm part of a team developing a PC strategy game, and we are nearing completion. Unfortunately, we just found out that our game's name is already used by another PC strategy game. I'm wondering if we are still allowed to use the name if we do not make any profit from our game. Also, could we still use it if we received donations? Thanks!

You almost certainly need to change the name. If your game was successful and anyone heard of it then the other company would come after you. Best to avoid potential legal issues by selecting a new name.
